The Upper Mustang trek is the ultimate gateway to the mysterious world of the old Buddhist kingdom of Mustang, also called Lo. Once forbidden and isolated from the rest of the world for decades, the area was able to evolve within its own distinctive culture and rich traditions closely tied to Tibet. This moderate, lesser-known trek passes through one of the driest regions of Nepal and provides spectacular mountain scenery.
Nepal 15-Day Trekking Tours & Itineraries
15 days is long enough to experience all the highlights, both natural and man-made, on a trek around Nepal. There’s the Upper Mustang Trek, which visits the famous Lost Kingdom of Mustang (also called Lo), an isolated settlement that preserves traditional Tibetan life. You could continue an off-the-beaten-path adventure as you hike to Pikey Peak (great 360° views of the Himalaya) and Dudh Kunda Lake, which is sacred to Buddhists. For a shorter trek there’s the hike to Annapurna Base Camp, where you’ll be treated to unobstructed views of the snow-capped Annapurna Massif.
